    WRISE Philadelphia Careers Networking Night with EnergeiaWorks!

    July 18, 2019
    5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, 3 hours
    On July 18th, we're holding a can't-miss clean energy careers networking event in collaboration with industry-acclaimed, New Jersey-based cleantech recruiter EnergeiaWorks! The lead session will be starting at 5:30, titled: "Fireside Chat with EnergeiaWorks: Your Career in Clean Energy!” It'll be a great chance for WRISE members to interact with an expert panel of speakers in an informal discussion setting, at none other than our own Field House Bar and Grill, conveniently located near Jefferson Station and the 11th Street Station on the Market-Frankford line. Afterwards, get free access to the Renewables UnWind Philadelphia session that EnergeiaWorks is holding from 6:30-8:30pm! You haven't had the full clean energy networking experience until you've been to a "Renewables UnWind" night, so it's super exciting that Philadelphia has been chosen for this month's event. Limited space for this event, so be sure to register soon!
